Autoglym advice for Super Resin Polish by hand is to use a damp sponge Polish applicator.
I use a Scholl Concepts Black waffle pad mist with QD to start and keep the quantity of Super Resin Polish down just a few blobs. You will be amazed how little is required when applying by DA.

Cheers for the advice,

It has been many years since I used SRP by machine but I would suggest applying at speed 1 or 2. It is always worth experimenting with speeds but remember my speed is not always better

As an aside, the 3M blue pad would not be my chosen pad. I will happily spend all day praising the 3M pads for a rotary but they will be less efficient with a DA. This does not mean they wont work, they will but they will absorb some of the orbit from the DA and so loose some effectiveness
